WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue University is continuing to prepare for the fall semester. Part of those preparations include providing kits for each student. 

Purdue President Mitch Daniels says each student will receive a kit with health supplies when they arrive to campus.The kits will be distributed as part of the normal orientation process for all students.

Some of the supplies in the kits will be a mask, hand sanitizer and thermometers.

"It has a thermometer, their own Purdue thermometer, because taking your temperature every day is a great way to catch the symptoms on the front end," said Daniels. 

The kits are just one way the university is implementing safety measures. Daniels said there will be changes implemented to residence halls, dining facilities and classrooms.

Even with the changes taking place, Daniels is reminding students to look at the bigger picture.

"It may seem like a long time to go through this fall, but take the long view," said Daniels. "The benefits will be there for decades and decades to come."

Daniels said if students are willing to help preserve a safe campus, they can still achieve the value of getting a Purdue degree on schedule.

"We are going to be saying to our students 'we regret this and we are not going to like this any better than you,'" said Daniels. "But this is what is necessary."
